Awesome quote Kdall!!!! Viva les France! RETREAT!!!!
Let me get this straight.
A touted prospect chooses another school and the coaches are lazy or somehow blew it.
But then a touted prospect chooses OU and the coaches are "lucky".
It seems like you have an agenda. Or you just like the attention you get from stirring the pot.
So what if it wasn't his plan! Can you imagine "planning" your job around the whims of 17-18 year old boys who are being courted by 10-15 other schools? You need a plan and a boatload of luck for that! Some years are better, some are worse, some recruits are highly sought after (Bomar, Rawls) some are not and they become superstars. It bears repeating that we won't get all we want, we will get some that don't pan out, we will get others who shine. OU has fielded teams (and for the understatement, pretty good ones) for over 100 years. The sky falls, then it doesn't. Just roll with the flow, man. Be happy when something warrants it!
It's not hard to figure out..is it?
On this board you must agree with everyone or you're wrong.
IreallyloveOU must have a problem that is not known to the rest of us. To criticize Jackie Shipp for getting 2 excellent defensive linemen and possibly a 3rd, makes one think that he must be off in the head somewhat. Hope he gets better. It is sad that weird-os act like that . Truly sad.
IRLOU has already issued a public apology, perhaps consider cutting him some slack?
Please. Get back on your meds!
The only real question now is whether the down votes on this thread will outweigh the up votes on the apology thread. This one may go down to the wire......
Understood that the Manning to ATM was primarily because of his girl friend being an Aggie. Hard to fight hormones. Shipp is from Stillwater and was a great player for the Sooners. Excellent recruiter. Loyal to the core.
